A TV commercial starring American actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld, Veep) has been pulled off the air in Israel after receiving complaints about its jokey portrayal of overweight women.

The commercial - for an Israeli cable TV company - opens with Louis-Dreyfus running into a plus-size colleague eating a bag of potato chips in the company elevator. 'Oh, my god! Congratulations! I bet it’s a girl,' she exclaims. She further mortifies the woman by announcing her mistake to the rest of the office. She continues making awkward mistakes with her co-workers, culminating in a remark that the hefty woman can’t be pregnant, “because obviously she hasn't dated anyone in forever.”

The American ad agency that created the ad is hustling to pull it from the internet. So, watch it now and see what you think...while you still can!
